    Upset by negative species stereotypes

    I have a pet ferret named Spinel. I've had her for years and she is one of my best friends. I've come to identify with her, and in some of my daydreams and fantasies I'm a ferret-like creature. Then "The Suicide Squad" happened. Is this really how people see weasels? Are they seen as...

    IReally really bad artist burnout. Who else?

    It's late at night and im reevaluating and need to share. Trying to make a name in the world of art is brutal. I've spent nearly 10 years improving my work, getting better, taking classes. I got a degree in art and worked for many clients, and jobs. It's tough, and I have had really bad timing...

    Slight vent

    I have been rather depressed, stressed, and angry lately. I fear that I will delve back into the mental state I had a couple years ago, which was very bad to say the least. However, thanks to a friend who came to visit recently, they have introduced me to cannabis. I initially tried it just for...

    How to deal with anxiety

    I feel a painful compression in my chest 90 percent of the time. I can’t sleep and it’s affecting my art production. I’ve tried meditation but it hasn’t worked. I ordered some cod oil online so I hope that will do something, but is there anything I can do besides deep breathing to sooth my pain...

    Feel like I'm at the end.

    This year I've lost my house, been arrested and brutalized in police custody, lost most of my pets and crippled myself. And the mental health services have decided that they can't help me because most of my problems are caused by autism and not psychotic illness. They've passed me on to "social...

    That's it. That's honestly it. I can't hold this back any longer.

    What was once here was a long, rambling, pathetic, childish post that I'm now to embarrassed by to keep. Got rid of it.

    Have you had depression due to the fact that you do not succeed?

    Maybe you had depression because of the drawing in the initial stages. You wanted to draw a furry, but then realized that you are not good at it and you left for a hard drinking, it's joke......maybe...

    Fight or flight simmering to close to the surface.

    It was a post in another forum thread by another forum member that prompted me to create this thread. The intention is to discuss when you find yourself in the situation where either the fight, flight or both are sitting too close to the surface. Personally I have been struggling with this...

    Unsupportive Friends and Wanting to be in the fandom again

    Hi there, forum people. I should give a little background: I used to openly be a furry in high school, drawing furry art in public, not denying being one, and all that stuff. I followed all the latest in the furry fandom and even drew for some people. I never had really any friends though...

    This just irks me.

    "Sure! We Happy Few is inspired by, among other things, prescription drug culture — the idea that no one should have to be sad if they can pop a pill and fix it. It’s also about Happy Facebook culture: no one shares their bad news because it would bring everyone down. As a culture, we no longer...

    (CLOSED) Depression (Budget $40-$50) (CLOSED)

    Hey there. Gunna try to put this simply. I am looking to get a nitty gritty piece done. I have been struggling with depression for a while now and am looking to get a piece to accurately portray it, or as close as possible (seeing as I cant draw it myself haha). Mind you, I'm not looking for...

    A Shadow in Human Form

    Why is it when you do your hardest to try an be social with people...with your friends...but then..they don't reciprocate? Why do I bother to stay around, but when I get depressive and want to disappear from the world...they crawl back to me like fucking cockroaches and beg me to say. Tell me...

    I'm done

    That's it. I've had enough of this place as nobody here likes me. You all throw me away like trash and this isn't helping me. Screw you all.

    Cutting: don't do it... please.

    I'm a serial self-mutilator... there, I said it. And it's true. I'd never shame or put down anyone else who cuts, or has attempted suicide. That shit is real. It's bad to cut yourself, and to feel so bad that you are compelled to do it, but not something to be ashamed of. But it is dangerous...

    What do you do to help curb depression and anxiety? And other thoughts I have.

    Hope this is posted in the right place. I have been dealing with depression and anxiety for 10+ years. I deal with hating my self, low self image, no motivation and bad social anxiety. I am on a medication regimen but it isn't helping as much as it used to. I'm curious as to what's working for...

    For those with anxiety

    This is a response I made for someone on my other post about depression. I thought it worth it to copy the response and paste it as a whole new thread. Here you go! “I know all to well the problem of anxiety, and living with it my whole life and having had multiple counselors, I know a thing or...

    Rant thread solved

    EDIT: Long story short: This was a disaster but it all worked out in the end. If you're curious, send me a note we can chat. Turns out, I didn't know my wife had managed to get a savings set up and I ended up putting in two weeks. It may get a little rough for awhile but at least I have a...
